Science Week CPD – Moons, Moons, Moons!

 

Date: 23 October 2019

Time: 6-8pm

Venue: Drumcondra Education Centre

 

Explore the science of our nearest celestial neighbour, The Moon, and learn about the other moons we know about!

How old is it? How did it form? Why do we only see one side? What made the craters?

Through a series of investigations, we will address all these questions and more

  • Make your own Meteorites, and use them to make impact craters
  • How does the Moon differ from Earth? We look at Weather, Gravity, Earth and Space
  • We’ll learn how the Moon is valued by different cultures.

These free, 2-hour courses will show participants how to use inquiry based learning techniques to promote children’s learning and understanding of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM). Participants will also explore activities that support the theme of each STEM Week. These have been developed from ESERO and Discovery Primary Science & Maths resources.

These courses are being offered with the support of Science Foundation Ireland and ESERO Ireland (European Space Education Resource Office).
